Puerto Rican Tostones (Fried Plantains)
*Great recipe. Use the green plaintains as a savory side- as it is not sweet yet. Use cajun seasoning at the end for a kick. *Use the dark colored (black) plantains for a sweet dessert or balance to your meal. Sprinkle w/ just a little cinnamon, dark sugar, and nutmeg. *For both green or dark plantains, try the thousand island recipe, or buy store bought. *After frying, flatten between wax paper w/ a roller. I do not dip in cold water because I will set my house on fire.

Marinated Pork Tenderloin
I placed the marinated medallions in tin foil w/ ripe, pitted cherries and grilled. This recipe sounds time consuming, but it's really not. Guests will be impressed. Serve with Shiraz wine, and Chocolate covered pears or cherries for dessert. Great leftovers for Cuban sandwiches.
